Church members of First Baptist Church surround our pastor with daily and weekly prayer. Each Sunday they gather in the pastor’s office to pray during the worship service. They pray for the prayer cards turned into the offering plate that week and they pray for the people and the pastor while the Word of God is being proclaimed.

"On the day that the intelligence and talents of women are fully honored and employed, the human community and the planet itself will benefit in ways we can only begin to imagine."
- Anita Diamant
One of the advantages of the Information Age is that the Internet has provided a platform from which those typically marginalized by the Church can speak and be heard. As a woman whose opportunities for Christian leadership were severely limited by the conservative evangelical culture in which I was raised, blogging has given me a voice and a reach I would not have otherwise had, and I am so grateful for that.
The recent revelation that Mars Hill Church in Seattle paid an outside company to boost sales of its pastor's books has raised questions not simply about personal integrity but also about the very culture of American Evangelicalism.
As an English Presbyterian living in the States, I am never quite sure about whether I am an "Evangelical" by American standards. Back home, I am Evangelical without question, but here it is more complicated. I certainly hold to a traditional, orthodox Protestant faith with a strong existential twist. But American Evangelicalism is more (and sometimes much less) than that. The political commitments of the movement are, on the whole, a mystery to me. And, while the celebrity leadership of the movement is comprehensible to me in sociological terms, I find it distasteful and arguably unbiblical. It too often seems to represent exactly what Paul was criticizing in 1 Corinthians 1.
Thomas Watson was a gifted preacher and writer in England during the 1600's. He loved the well-known verse: Romans 8:28. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
The enemy of our souls tries to take the trials the Lord brings into our lives and turn them into temptations so that we stop trust the goodness of God. How does he do that? By waiting to ambush us in the trial. He roams around like a criminal who is free on bail and tempts us to deny the Lord in our trials.
